Re: Poll: What percentage of your gold is held in physical form?

For new money into gold, right now I'm not sure ETF's might make more sense considering the high markup over spot price that most dealers are charging for bullion. Lock in gains (or losses) with ETF's then convert to bullion when markups come down..............assuming they ever will.

Re: Biden’s Gun Plan

But I think before guns, women and physically weak men had pretty much no way to protect themselves from strong men wanting to do harm to them. Reminds me of the old quote "God made men, Same Colt made them equal". This reads quite transphobic. Since physical strength differences between men and wo...

Biden’s Gun Plan

This is a follow up to a recent 2nd Amendment thread. Regardless of your opinion on the Right to Bear Arms issue, this should be a concerning issue. https://dailycaller.com/2020/11/24/joe-biden-gun-control-liability-protections-gun-manufacturers-bankrupt-commerce-in-arms/ Is it prudent to use a friv...

Re: Trump self pardon

I'd probably become a "Wackadoodle" if I had some bimbo running her mouth like that in my ear! Just watching the video reminded me of fingernails scratching on a chalkboard. How would you react to being in an airport and having someone, uninvited, following you around? Considering that he is an ele...

Re: Trump self pardon

How do you "pardon" someone who has not been formally accused or convicted of an actual crime? Throughout Trump's administration the MSM as continuously based their rhetoric on "what if" scenarios. Granted, Trump has done his best to give them ammunition, but how do folks get so fired up over "what ...

Re: What I Fear From Biden Presidency

Well............you are both right. I momentarily drifted away from reality. I guess the question that always goes through my mind about the people that show up on main stream media is "do they really believe all the leftists propaganda they pour out, or do they just think we are stupid enough to be...

Re: What I Fear From Biden Presidency

If I were a leftist looking to make effective inroads into gun control, I believe I would spend more time learning about the guns I want to ban. Being able to quote statistics is one thing, being able to articulate which firearms are a priority to eliminate is another. It is incredible how many time...

Re: Ebola vs COVID-1984

We certainly have seen the "to wear" or "not to wear" a mask issue become very contentious during the last few months. It has made me wonder what would be the general public's reaction should we ever experience a pandemic of greater severity. Large-scale isolation and quarantine was last enforced du...

Re: How to improve our voting system

Distrust of the election system is often a sign of a society in its final phase of life. I think the distrust is a symptom of larger problems and not actually the cause. Right now any election, no matter how perfect, would be distrusted by large amounts of people. Not to be overly dramatic, but it ...
